Jim is head of our Family department and is a member of the Law Society’s Children Panel, Family Law Panel and Mediation Panel. He is an accredited Resolution family law and collaborative specialist. He has worked as a mediator since 1995.
Having practised as a solicitor in the field of family and divorce law for over 30 years in London and Bristol, Jim is devoted to helping separating and divorcing clients who want to avoid the trauma of prolonged conflict to find solutions that they have had a part in rather than the court.
Jim assists parents or children in disputes over children arrangements, including applications for a care order made by the local authority. He also advises on pre-nuptial agreements and cohabitee disputes and is a member of our Barcan+Kirby Mediation team.
